This is a reminder of our scheduled Professional Activity (PA) Day this Friday – Friday, September 23, 2016. There will be no school for WRDSB students.

All elementary and secondary employee groups will be focusing on the new WRDSB Strategic Plan, School Improvement Planning, and Health and Safety Training. This will drive the work and support for the 2016-17 school year.

In the morning, staff will be introduced to our strategic plan, examine sources of data related to student achievement and well-being, and begin to identify areas of focus for improvement for the coming year.

In the afternoon, WRDSB staff will engage in mandatory Health and Safety training, which includes Workplace Violence and Harassment Training, WHMIS Training, and Ministry of Labour – Health and Safety Training. It is the expectation of the Board that all staff complete the online training sessions.

Kindergarten educators teams will be collaborating and learning more about the revised Kindergarten Program (2016) and the new Growing Success: The Kindergarten Addendum.
